Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Frank Black

Pixies singer Frank Black dropped nine CDs between the iconic alternative band’s split in 1993 and their reunion 11 years later. This retrospective — which includes one manic new cut (”Threshold Apprehension”) and a live bonus disc — compiles the best bits of that time, from the spaced-out jangle of Black’s first solo efforts to grittier sessions with his then backing musicians, the Catholics. Though not as trailblazing as the Pixies catalog, 93-03 makes a strong case for Black as an eccentric visionary in his own right. B+
